With its planned debut in early 2024, Ecojet will initially focus on flight routes connecting Edinburgh.
The airline will use a fleet of retrofitted conventional planes equipped with hydrogen-electric powertrains.
By repurposing older aircraft, the airline anticipates an annual reduction of approximately 90,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.
However, the retrofitting process is expected to commence in 2025, one year after Ecojet’s inaugural flights, as the company seeks to expedite the transition to its hydrogen-electric-powered fleet.
“The desire to travel is deeply etched into the human spirit, and flights free of carbon dioxide emissions, powered by renewable energy will allow us to explore our incredible world without harming it for the first time.”
